I Heart Estate Sales
When I got an email early last week that one of my favorite antique malls, All That Jazz, was hosting an estate sale...I got pretty excited...giddy to be exact.
I wanted to get there bright and early the first day of the sale, but with Logan in tow I knew that wasn't a possibility. Bright and early the first day of an estate sale equals insanity...and with a toddler...insane insanity. Even though I knew it would be a little picked over the second day, it was my only option.
When I arrived at the sale, to my surprise, there was still a lot of cool stuff left.... AND everything was 25% off!!! Woot-woot!!!
Here's what I came home with...
Two milk bottles to add to my collection. The first from Pittsford Dairy which has been in business for over fifty years. The second (or third in my photo) from Rose Dairy, Fairport NY. Never heard of it, so I did a little digging and found these two old newspaper ads from 1940's...
Next, this old mason jar cherry pitter...
I love the jar itself. It has the vintage Anchor Hocking Mason logo on it. Take a closer look...
They had a TON of red handle vintage kitchen tools. I'm starting to collect these for the kitchen at our lake house. There is a beautiful antique platter with a bright red lobster on it already there that I'm going to theme the kitchen around.
Last, but certainly not least, I grabbed (no literally...another woman was making her way across the room for it) this fabulous and HUGE turkey platter.
A pretty good haul in my opinion!
